Can You Get Braces for Free?

In most instances, you cannot get braces for free. There are some neighborhood clinics in the DFW Metroplex that provide low-cost or free orthodontics, but these services are usually reserved for the homeless and financially destitute. The best option for most people who are looking for affordable braces in Fort Worth is to set up a monthly payment plan that they can afford.

If you qualify for Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program, then the state might pay for your children to receive braces. We encourage you to contact the state of Texas to learn more about these programs and to see if you qualify for them.

What is the Cheapest Price for Braces?

Different orthodontists in Fort Worth charge different prices for their services. The average braces cost in Fort Worth is between $3k - $6k. However, the price can be higher than that, depending on the circumstances. To avoid paying the rather expensive cost of braces, many people will travel to Mexico or Costa Rica to save money. The downside of dental tourism is that you have no protection or quality assurance, and often, patients who receive treatment overseas come to us for us to fix the problems that resulted from their overseas treatment.

What to Do if You Can't Afford Braces?

If you find out that braces seem out of bounds for your budget right now, don't lose heart or give up. A healthy, straight smile is a vital part of good health. Here are some channels that you can pursue to receive braces for free or at a price you can afford:

  • Visit an orthodontic school clinic
  • Ask for a payment plan
  • Use credit options
  • Look for local dental assistance programs

Does Insurance Cover Braces?

If you have dental insurance, your provider might pay some or all of your insurance costs. Employer-sponsored dental insurance often covers the cost of braces as well. This depends on the plan and level of coverage. Of course, not all dental insurance plans cover orthodontic treatment, so we recommend that you contact your provider or employer and find out what is covered under your policy.

Dr. Staples found the perfect place to start his practice when he first saw Mission Viejo. A native Californian, he wanted to find a community that catered to his vision of both his work and family life. His dream was to raise his family in a town that provided a safe, friendly environment with good schools and healthy family values.

Since moving to Mission Viejo in 1976, Dr. Staples has been a figure in Mission Viejo both personally and professionally. With his wife, Durenda, they raised 3 children and experienced many years of community interaction and support. From Little League to club soccer, high school football and gymnastics, Dr. Staples has been an active parent in nearly all sporting organizations that are available in Mission Viejo. And now that his children are grown, Dr. Staples is committed to staying involved in the community by professionally sponsoring many local teams and schools. Dr. Staples has participated in other things such as the Elk’s Club, Charity Events, Food Drives and in-classroom dental education at many local elementary schools. Dr. Staples also spent many years as an active member of an a cappella singing group that performed at numerous churches, local civic events and social outreach programs.

Aside from his personal endeavors, Dr. Staples’ educational and professional background is substantial. A graduate of Whittier College, Loyola University School of Dentistry and the USC Orthodontic Department, Dr. Staples considers educational curiosity to be the hallmark of a professional’s life. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, which is the highest level of professional achievement for diagnostic abilities and treatment skills. He is also a former clinical professor for the UCLA School of Dentistry’s Orthodontic Department and the inventor of an innovative orthodontic expansion device that is used in orthodontic offices worldwide. He reads every piece of dental and orthodontic literature that he can find, and continually takes advanced, specialized courses that involve the latest breakthroughs in the profession.

Over the years, Dr. Staples’ professional and personal involvement in Mission Viejo has brought smiles to many faces you see every day. With everything he has done, Dr. Staples has never veered from his initial dream to provide honest, exceptional orthodontic care to his community.

Since establishing himself as one of the first orthodontists in Mission Viejo, Dr. Staples has had a commitment to provide his patients with the highest quality of orthodontic treatment in a supportive, caring way. He uses the latest technology along with proven orthodontic solutions and recommends them based on his patients’ individual needs. High-tech orthodontic systems can be seen in his use of self-ligating brackets, like the Damon System, Invisalign treatment, temporary anchorage devices, digital orthodontic systems, and more.

In addition to practicing orthodontics, Dr. Staples is the Program Director and tenured instructor for South Coast Dental Institute, a vocational school that is involved with dental education.
